Why should you wake up at 6 am for a walk on a holiday even if it is in Jaipur ? This way you will get to see an early morning face of jaipur and the parks of Jaipur where you would not go otherwise in the daytime.The walk and the shower afterwards will rejuvenate you for the travails of holiday making in rest of the day.Let me motivate you.A couple walks all the way from their home to the Govind Dev Ji temple for the first Jhanki of the day once a week. And Govind Dev Ji is offered the best prasad ever- chowgani ke laddu( the ingredients for the recipe are one part gram flour four part sugar and desi ghee).The prasad is available to darshanarthis on token payment.
But where to go ? There is a garden handy in almost every colony but the places mentioned below are close to every morning walker’s heart in Jaipur.
Ram Niwas Garden
Karpoor Chandra Kulish Simriti Ban,on JLN Marg
Rose Garden On Jawahar Circle
Park near the Deer Park in C-Scheme.
Statue Circle and The Central Park
Jogging Track around the Jal Mahal
Road up to the Nahargarh and back
On the grounds of the Clubs of Jaipur (subject to the club’s Rules)
Or the road out side your hotel or guest house as it is pretty quite at 6 am.
The idea is to work up a sweat and drink in the early morning cool air. When you are on your walk be on the look out for a news paper walla he is sure to have an extra copy of your news paper.It will be Jaipur edition but still worth your time. By the time you finish it will be after 7 am.
Before you hit the shower have a cup of tea at SAHU’S tea shop or a cup of Coffee at the Statue Circle Or a lassi at the famous Lassiwalla opposite the Niros restaurant on the M.I.Road or you can have bewari poori and ram alloo at the sweet shop “Gangaur” in Bagria Bhawan( on sunday only 8 am to 11 am) or some traditional indian snacks at Rawat’s near Polo Victory cinema multiplex-after all it is a holiday.
